House Minority leader John Boehner criticized the building of the not-ground zero mosque on the grounds of tolerance. Really.
“The fact that someone has the right to do something doesn’t necessarily make it the right thing to do,” Boehner said. “That is the essence of tolerance, peace and understanding.”
The essence of tolerance is that the minority must peacefully tolerate and understand the majority’s bigotry?
Obviously having passed high school civics isn’t a requirement for becoming House Minority Leader.
